An Inclusive Community That Ignites Lifelong Learning
Welcome to Springwood Elementary! Springwood is now in year
3 since its opening in 2017, and it continues to be a steadily
growing school with 227 students (10 Divisions) in grades K-7
from the North end of Prince George. Within these past three
years, Springwood has become a welcoming, student centered,
close knit school community.
Springwood has 17 Teachers and 10 Support Staff. In addition, we
have a Y after school program. Our school is proud of our rich
Fine Arts Program for students in grades K-7, offered through
music, ukulele, recorder, band, and dance. In addition,
Springwood students and staff get to utilize up to date technology
including laptops at students’ fingertips, smart panels in all
classrooms, 3D printer, iPads, Makey-makey kits, micro bits,
cameras, drone camera, condenser microphones, various robotic
items, and a green screen. All our classrooms are welcoming
environments that recognize the diverse needs of all students. We are proud to be a part of the Hart Family of Schools, joining
together with our neighbouring schools for such events as Fine
Arts Night and the Together We Move Dance Program.
The staff at Springwood continue to grow and readjust our
Positive Behavior Intervention Support Program (PBIS) to meet
the changing need of our learners. A PBIS Program is a
“schoolwide system of supports that include proactive strategies
for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student
behaviours to create positive school environments”. As the
framework for this program, the staff and students at Springwood
determined back in 2017 a core set of values that are important
to all of us “SPARK” Safety, Perseverance, Accountability, Respect,
and Kindness. This year, we have further expanded this program
by merging it with the Core Competencies.
We look forward to the 2019-2020 school year filled with meaningful
learning and lots of fun!
